Having a QB that they believe they can win with has probably made them keep some players they would probably have let go 10 years ago. I think it's a common problem when teams win and win big. It's a nice problem to have.
Very well said. It's one thing to try and improve every year, but why would you let go ppl who were helping you get to the SB?
you'll always have an unfavorable opinion of New York if you only focus on the pimps and the C.H.U.D.s
